Sandalwood essential oil soy candles are now available! I have had so many requests for sandalwood (which I had shunned away from due to the $100 an ounce price tag!) that I decided to see if possibly, sandalwood is so strong that I don't need much. And I was very pleasantly surprised! I have no desire to sell candles for $100 each. After all, I really want people to stop depending upon petroleum based products and to stop using synthetic fragrance. That isn't going to happen if a candle costs over $100!!! Turns out, just a few drops of the highly fragrant essential oil is all I need for a 6 oz. candle. YEAH!!! Of course, that still means that each drop costs about $1.00, but, at least it keeps it attainable! The smell is amazing! Musky, earthy, exotic, sexy, very romantic if I do say so myself!
I also have combined sandalwood, frankensince, patchoulli and a few other organic oils, in an organic coconut oil base, to make a wonderful Musk.
Some more exciting news! I am in the process of making pillar candles! I adore pillar candles and often come across beautiful pillar holders which I cannot use because my candles are all jar candles. The soy I use is not solid enough to be made into pillars. Once lit, the pillars would melt and create a a big mess! However, the American company that makes my GMO free soy "wax", has made a GMO free, soy "wax" for pillar candles! It is extra hard and I can't wait to see how it works! If it works out well, you'll being seeing them on the website soon!
Ironically, our wonderful ice cream man brought me a box of pillar candle making supplies that he had found at a yard sale. I was touched that he thought of me and told him how thankful I was. However, at the time, I couldn't make pillar candles so I have just been storing the box. I am so happy to be able to use it! How did he know?
